From bold florals to geometric motifs, intricate abstract vibes, and more, well-placed statement fabrics can instantly breathe life into your favorite spaces. 

Welcome to today’s upholstery playtime. We’ll celebrate one powerful way to infuse personality and visual pop into your home by using large-scale patterns in the furniture upholstery fabrics you choose. We’ll help you visualize how to do it and give you plenty of fabric suggestions along the way. It’s time to live a bit larger and make your home or office vibe just a bit — or wildly — livelier. Just because you want to. 

The Wow Factor: How Large-Scale Fabric Patterns Can Make Your Vibe Shine

When we’re talking about the interior design of your home, we’re talking about intentionally looking at what the energy of the space is. What does it feel like — and what do you want it to feel like? And when we’re talking about impacting the energy of a space, large-scale pattern upholstery fabrics are pretty much superheroes. 

So if WOW is what you seek, try outfitting a piece or an entire set of furniture in a large-scale pattern. Like a sofa in neutral, natural white paired with two strikingly clad armchairs in a contemporary floral pattern with persimmon brown and orange. Or maybe take an entire set of living room furniture in bold but soft and calming misty blue large-scale floral cotton fabric and add elegance to the impact with windows curtained in sheer wheat beige. 

Large-scale patterns create a sense of drama and uniqueness that can elevate any room from ordinary to extraordinary. The pattern becomes a focal point that commands attention and sets the tone for the entire space. WOW!

That’s Deep: How Upholstery Patterns Can Add Dimension To Your Home

(So many fabric superpowers to get to today.) Large-scale patterns bring depth and dimension to your home or office interior design. It’s the intricate details and expansive nature of these patterns that get it done. They create a sense of visual movement, making the room feel more dynamic and engaging. 

Like white wicker sunroom furniture with cushions upholstered in sunset orange Moroccan tile jacquard or a headboard in turquoise blue contemporary pattern mud-cloth inspired fabric. And depth and dimension don’t have to require bright colors. Stay neutral but add energy to a cramped home office with a loveseat in beige and white chevron brocade or a mixed-tone abstract wave chevron damask. By incorporating these patterns into your upholstery, you add depth to your furniture and transform it into a work of art.

Large-Scale Patterns Can Instantly Change The Scale Of Your Home

You know doubt know the experience of feeling like there’s either not enough or too much furniture in a space. This is especially a thing when you move and what fits perfectly in one home is just not right in your new one. Large-scale patterns can help navigate that issue and balance the scale — pun intended. 

For instance, if you have a large family room, a large, generously patterned sectional fills the space beautifully without overwhelming it. This is the moment for those patterns you love but think, ”Can I really do that?” You can. So indulge in that burgundy and blue damask plaid, that modern abstract patterned velvet in brilliant colors, or the elegant jacquard in an oversized orchid floral pattern.

In a smaller room, large-scale patterns help you make it feel larger and more expansive. Try something large-scale but also surprisingly subtle like a Hampton blue striped Crypton linen that stretches the visual horizon. Same with a slightly bolder but still grounding and eco-friendly fabric in spicy rust stripes. (Side note: This is part of the appeal of stripes in outdoor furniture, adding scope regardless of how much space you have.)

The point is, a tape measure might say one thing about your room’s size, but the patterns you choose can offer something else entirely.

Personality Change: Large-Scale Patterns Give Your Home A New Attitude

Now let’s talk about you AND your home. Because your home is an expression of your fabulously unique personality and style. Large-scale patterns offer a wonderful opportunity to infuse your personal flair into your design vibe. 

Got a flair for the modern? Try a pair of office armchairs to welcome visitors in a forest gold and green geo-diamond pattern cotton fabric. Own your tropical vibe with a Hawaii beach foliage pattern print — indoors or outdoors. Want to express a softer, more traditional side? Try upholstering your headboard in a classic blue toile pattern or a large-scale medallion in shades of beige gently evoking middle eastern vibes.

Whatever your personal style is, there’s a pattern that can speak to your taste and set your vibe. Part of the beauty of large-scale patterns lies in their versatility and ability to complement various design styles.

Mix and Match Fabric Patterns To Spice Up Your Home’s Design Style

One last tool we want to offer you: mix and match. Mixing and matching can be done in small ways with accent pieces or elements like curtains and throw pillows. And it’s yet another chance to make your style uniquely yours. 

Like a loveseat in a retro beige striped pattern with throw pillows in a royal blue traditional pattern damask linen. Or — wait ‘til you see this one — cotton fabric in vivid blue with a bird and foliage pattern perfect for curtains, throw pillows, or even an accent chair. The pattern scale is smaller but the impact of the color is large-scale for sure. Particularly against a neutral or monochromatic upholstery design style.

Or really play with it and use an ash-gray floral jacquard for a chaise lounge in a space with curtains in a fushia purple geometric pattern for a look that mixes, matches, and sings with personality.

Bottom line: Combining different patterns creates a layered and visually captivating space. Plus, you get to really showcase your creativity.
